Greenpeace: UK fracking plans a 'dangerous fantasy'

The environmental campaign group Greenpeace has warned that shale gas will not lower energy bills in the UK, as it has in the US:

Energy analysts agree the UK cannot replicate the American experience of fracking, and that shale gas will do little or nothing to lower bills.
